I'll never understand that - why oh why oh why do people buy bikes like that, then do something utterly daft with them?

What is it with the odd use of bar ends - I've seen them in other pics, too - like running vertically, or something. Just the thing for when you've not had quite enough wrist injuries.

I don't get it, if people want a sort of sit-up-and-beg type bike, why don't they get one?

It's not so much the bar ends, and I know it's a highly regarded frame, but I can't understand anyone who would ride an MTB with a horizontal top tube!!

Same reason people used to flip road bike drop bars upside down. Because they don't know any better and or they can't bend over. This was probably the wrong bike for the original owner but some bike shop was glad to sell it to him.
